It is true that mobile phones have changed society more than anyone would ever think. Just like all machines, the mobile phone has made our lives easier and our works faster. It has transformed society in more ways than one that phones are now a big part of our daily lives, almost an extension of our being. Now that the iPhone has been in the market for a total of 10 years, it is a wonder how it has changed the world, particularly how people travel.

Traveling can get lonely especially when you miss your friends or your family. Seeing them, and hearing their voice is one of the best ways to ease the loneliness. The iPhone urged the people to be more connected through FaceTime, a kind of video chat platform other than Skype that came before whatever video chat platforms exist today.

Mobile phones, in general, has helped people be more appreciative and sentimental about their travels as taking photos have been made easier. According to the PC Magazine, the release of the iPhone in 2007 has slowly pushed small cameras out of the market. As the iPhone has been quite focused on the details of their mobile cameras and has been the best quality since it was first released.

Furthermore, there are now more and more travel apps available on the iOS that makes traveling much easier and more fun. There are flight booking apps like Kayak. There are also notes and organizer apps like Evernote. Also for those special, desperate circumstances when driving in an unfamiliar place, iExit of iOS can be the great app that will help anyone find the right corner to turn.

According to a testimony on Forbes, more people champion the iPhone because of the benefits that they get from it particularly about connectivity. Included in this, and is most usually helpful when driving long journeys, is the easier ability to connect through Bluetooth. This special feature has allowed an individual to sync contacts and maps to the vehicle for easier, wireless conversations and navigation.
